Tips to Remember
Getting a suitable hotel or lodge is never a big problem in this town if you have planned for it early. During the rush periods of Navratra, summer vacations, new years and other festivals it is hard to get your desired room, if you don't have an advance booking. So plan for the journey well in advance, book rail/air tickets and make room reservations at the Yatri Niwas through the website of SMVDSB.
It is best to book a room somewhere near the Adhkuwari or Sanjichhat; as these places are almost few kilometers away from the Bhawan. If you are planning to have a darshan at Adhkuwari then it will take almost a waiting time of minimum 10-15 hours or a maximum of 24 hours during the rush season.
